How to stop update in firefox?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I use Firefox 4.0. Recently an update of Firefox was released.  Whenever I try to connect to the Internet, it starts an automatic update. I don’t know how to stop it. It is very annoying to update Firefox all the time. I want a permanent  "turn off"  Firefox update. So, what can I do now?

Thanks friends.

How to stop update in firefox?


Firefox is the best browser for browsing the Internet. It has many options. It is recommended that you update your Firefox regularly. But if you really want to turn off your update, you can do it.  Follow these steps:

  • First open your Firefox
  • Then open its “option menu” from the Tools on the menu bar.
  • After that open the “advanced" tab
  • Then go to the "Update" tab of the advanced tab
  • Then from there, deselect all the update options or you can manually deselect them. If you want to stop an update for Firefox, just deselect it. If you want to stop updating your add-ons, then deselect it & if you want to stop updating your search engine, then deselect it.

After doing this, your update will be halted and it will not start again. So,  the summary is like this:

Tools Menu > Options > Advanced > Update.

Then turn off updates.

Enjoy your time in

How to stop update in firefox?


I am Jennielyn Campos.

I am an Information Technology student. I would like to help you on your posted question.

If you don't like any updates from Firefox, you must use the latest version. It would not  update anymore.

Try downloading it. But if you don't like to update it, for any reason try to follow these steps:

TOOLS>> PREFERENCE>>ADVANCED>>UPDATE Hope it would help you.

There's another way  I think  could help you stop updating your Firefox:
TOOLS>>OPTION>>ADVANCE>>UPDATE>>then click "Ask me what I want to do" instead of clicking the "Update Automatically".

If these two options don't work, try using Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. There's no harm in using these two. It is also free in downloading.  Just search for it and you can download it. There are also guidelines on how to download it. So there's no problem at all.

Hope I could help you. 🙂
